John Oliver to Stephen Colbert: I Couldn't Care Less About Donald Trump
John Oliver was a guest on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night. When Colbert asked Oliver what he thinks of Donald Trump, Oliver couldn't express enough how much he didn't care about The Donald. He pointed out how it's only 2015, and yet we are obsessing over the 2016 presidential candidates when there are far more important issues to be covering.
In his years on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and now hosting his own show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Oliver has covered some very pressing issues and he's done it in some really clever and funny ways. From talking about the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) to America's crumbling infrastructure, to the time he sent "suspiciously cheap" food to fashion CEOs selling "shockingly cheap" clothing. He's even teamed up with Bill Nye to call out climate deniers, addressed food waste and exposed the horrors of the chicken industry.
Watch what he has to say about Donald Trump on the Late Show:
Colbert, on the other hand, fears that because Trump is slumping in the polls, he might drop out.
Find out why that has Colbert worried:

Under the guise of responding to consumer complaints that today's energy- and water-efficient dishwashers take too long, the Department of Energy has proposed creating a new class of dishwashers that wouldn't be subject to any water or energy efficiency standards at all. The move would not only undermine three decades of progress for consumers and the environment, it is based on serious distortions of fact regarding today's dishwashers.

If you have oak trees in your neighborhood, perhaps you've noticed that some years the ground is carpeted with their acorns, and some years there are hardly any. Biologists call this pattern, in which all the oak trees for miles around make either lots of acorns or almost none, "masting."

Tashi Yudon peeks out from behind a net curtain at the rooftops below and lets out a sigh, her breath frosting on the windowpane in front of her.
Some 700 kilometers away in the capital city Delhi, temperatures have yet to dip below 25 degrees Celsius, but in Spiti there is already an atmosphere of impatient expectation as winter settles over the valley.
